Default CC649 Nothing gray about dancing the twist in Bermuda!

Hello Color Challenge Friends!!

First business of the day: celebrating our favorite from last week:
Pam was our hostess and she picked Lv2grdn's (aka Jeannie) card here.

This is what she said about Jeannie's card: "Love the wonderful background texture on Jeannie's card and how she added color to the embossing. The flower was gorgeous and the framed texted behind the flower was a wonderful added dimension. She even had the dessert and used sequins!"

Congrats, Jeannie ! The code to add the badge to your blog is attached below, and your card also will be pinned on our Pinterest Challenge board. Check it out here.

So, on to this week’s challenge….Our colors this week are:



BasicGray
Bermuda Bay
Lemon Lime Twist

Dessert will be birthdays!

Here are some samples to get the creative juices flowing:

My 1st card (Maura)
My 2nd card

Mary’s card

Our fabulous guest designers:

Mary's(aka Octoberbabe) card

Priscilla's (aka catluvr2)card

CC649 Gallery

Please keep in mind, too, that while we list SU colors for the challenges, these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to play!!!

Please put CC649 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Heart CC649 love life

Maura- such a cool color combo! I used SU's A Happy Thing for my fussy cut images, using an embossed frame and adding a triple ribbon treatment. Used a bright green post it for my birthday sentiment. Here's CC649 love life

Thank you for the great color combination. Since it seemed like it could go in any direction I pulled out a word set to play with. Just as I was posting I realized I had forgotten to check the dessert. Lucky for me the set was all about birthdays!

Here's my 25 Plus Shipping and Handling.

I don't have any bermuda shade of paper or ink, so I came as close as I could with what I had on hand.

Thanks for the challenge!

Love challenges - especially with cards (and scrapbooking). These colours in particular were, at least for me because they took me out of my comfort zone of how I could combine them. So thank you. Here is my contribution for the challenge: CC649 - The Farmhouse by Raevon - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
